The water sector – contributing to the implementation of Grenada’s NDCs

As of: September 2021

Like all small island states in the Caribbean region, Grenada faces the risk of water scarcity, exacerbated by climate change, and has high potential for the introduction of renewable energy and energy efficiency. The government has identified the resilience of the water sector as a priority in all national climate strategy documents and successfully submitted a large-scale project to the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The International Climate Initiative is co-funding the GCF project with this project, which is developing the first carbon-neutral water utility in the Caribbean and disseminating this approach in the region. In this context, it is advising the Grenada National Water and Sanitation Authority to improve its water and energy efficiency. To this end, it promotes the introduction of renewable energy and supports the implementation of the water loss reduction strategy.
